Ask TJFormal: Is it OK to wear a short dress to prom?

Q: Is it OK to wear a short dress to prom?

Are short dresses formal enough and acceptable for prom? Absolutely! In fact, this year, short prom dresses are even more in style for Prom 2010. We are selling many, many short dresses and some have already sold out in our store. Of course, some short dresses are more formal than others and you probably don't want to look you are wearing a bridesmaid dress instead of a prom dress. So we are here to show you some great examples that are perfect for prom and will make you stand out in a crowd!

Sherri Hill is one of our best sellers for short prom dresses. Her designs are fun, flirty, yet filled with beautiful and unique embellishments, which makes them formal enough for a prom dress.

Try some very dressy jewelry, Added Attractions Necklace Set 7251 
Then finish it off with the perfect handbag like Special Occasions Handbag DP60075

  1. I'm so excited to wear a short prom dress this year! I think they're super cute.

  2. I think a short prom dress is a great idea. Just think, you could possibly even wear it again to a wedding or college formal.
